Default Road Prong Report

A friend of mine and I fished Road Prong twice last week. Two day total of about 55 brookies most all were on a #16 Adams or with a BHPT nymph dropper. Largest was a 10 1/2" brookie below Trickle Falls.

Question

I gotta ask - how do you manage a BHPT dropper from a #16 PA? Seems as though the dry would spend the whole time under water.

The new, self-propelled PA - has little flippers that help it tread water...only $49.99 each...I believe Roland Martin is peddling them, along with the "rocket" rod.

Default Yep...little flippers

No...it was not a problem for the most part with a tight line.

'Nuff said.

Can't argue with success.
